Hello, I'm new to low carbing. I'm trying it after reading a book by Hannah Sutter, Big Fat Lies. It's the science behind LC & was like a light switch going on in my head. No matter how much I exercise & count calories my weight loss has always been painfully slow.

The idea is that some people produce more insulin than others so get fatter, especially round the tummy. After years of being pear shaped this has happened to me.

Anyway, at the end of my tether, I thought I would give it a go.

I stated on 31/3/10 & up to this morning I have lost..... 7lbs!!!!!
That has never happened in my life! At the moment it feels like magic, I keep thinking thw scales are playing a joke on me:eek:

I decided to look for some support & found you.
